    My deepest condolences and prayers for your family. Joe was such a wonderful person and I am deeply saddened by the news of his passing. I had the pleasure of knowing Joe by being his sales lady for his vehicles. He was not only one of my awesome customers but a good friend. Rest in peace my friend. Loretta
